Washington Nationals Win the World Series

HOUSTON—Max Scherzer woke up Sunday morning in such severe pain that his wife needed to help him dress. His neck hurt so badly that he couldn’t lift his right arm, forcing him to miss his scheduled outing.

For Scherzer to sit in such a critical moment, it meant that he experienced of level of discomfort incomprehensible to most people. He pitched earlier this season the day after he broke his nose and dominated with a nasty shiner around his right eye. That epitomizes Scherzer.
